It's Not What You Know . . .

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Nashville, TN

I have been working at Corrections Corporation of America full-time for more than 8 years

ProsLongevity and leading position in the industry. Hardworking people who begin with the best intentions but become jaded or just getting by after years of not getting rewarded.

ConsGood ole boys network based on who you know, not what you know. Lots of talk about employee engagement and liking each other for who we all are, but not enough evidence to back up the chatter. Low pay in general. Diminishing benefits.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
